Archibus

Archibus is well suited for organizations requiring heavy reporting functions, and that have complex processes for managing moves and space chargebacks. It is less well suited for organizations that require input from multiple users (such as doing an employee seating survey).

It has a very broad application so there is not much it does not cover. Our accounting department could use it but they choose not to. Really it could be company-wide for many applications. I came in as a Maximo user which was nice but very expensive to purchase and maintain.

Cons

  • User Interface could be improved - it takes many steps to get to features within Webcentral, too complex, created for power users.
  • Pricing and fee schedules - surprised to find that they charged separately for Space Chargeback features within Space Management and annual maintenance fees.
  • Slow interface.

  • The work schedules are fixed so floating schedules cannot be used. It is a product suggestion the community is working on.
  • The Migration from our old system was not fun as the software where not compatible. Took me about three months to get everything in from transferring it to excel spread sheets.

Alternatives Considered

Archibus compares well with other IWMS software when it comes to integrating with BIM models and reporting capabilities. I selected Archibus as it has all the tools and processes needed to manage space and moves, with the intention to expand to other modules like Lease Administration and Asset Management. The constant upgrades to Archibus also helps to keep the software up-to-date with other third party products such as Revit.

It much more user-friendly and does not have a lot of wasted information that you would never use. I did a lot of research on other CMMS programs and questioned other users and was allowed to use the test module for 3 months. That pretty much sealed the deal for everyone except for those afraid of change. Eventually, they all fall in line and accept the new CMMS system.

  • My ROI was 30% just on machine repair costs alone.
  • We went from about 250 PM's to over 2000. Our Up time went from 68% to Nearly 90% on all production lines.
  • Our stock outs (Parts not in Parts Room) have dropped to 2%, usually from a new machine that had different part on it that was not the same as what we had.
  • We went from Producing 10 million pounds a month to over 27 Million.
